1/4 tsp chicken stock powder
250 gms cream cheese

Preparation Instructions

Crush the biscuits in a blender or place in plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Melt the butter and mix into the crushed biscuits. Line a 27 cm diameter loose bottom cake tin, pressing well into the sides with a jam jar or flat sided object.

Add the cream cheese, lime juice, condensed milk, sour cream and eggs and blend for a further 2 minutes or until really smooth.
